1. Scope

These Terms of Use shall govern the use of the YMME Platform.

This Platform is operated by Yamaha Music Europe GmbH Siemensstrasse 22-34, 25462 Rellingen, Germany (hereinafter "Yamaha").

By using the YMME Platform and creating an account on this Platform, you agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

Yamaha operates the YMME to provide you as user with information about Yamaha products and to allow for the registration of Yamaha products for the purpose of warranty extensions. The offer includes personal information management, registration and administration of products for the purpose of warranty extensions as well as registering for receiving and managing newsletters.

The YMME Platform is a free offer by Yamaha.

This Platform is intended for use by persons aged 18 or older and is not aimed at children and minors. Children and minors under the age of 18 may use this site only under the supervision and with the consent of a parent or guardian.

2. Amendments to the offer

Yamaha reserves the right to alter the features and scope of YMME offer at any time or to discontinue it.

Yamaha furthermore reserves the right to restrict, deny, or cancel access to the YMME Platform as a whole or in part at any time without prior notice and without giving reasons in its sole discretion with immediate effect.  

3. Registration

The use of this Platform requires prior registration by users. Registration is free of charge.

Users of the platform are furthermore free to voluntarily provide additional data to personalize the offer.
Users shall bear sole responsibility for any disadvantages resulting from providing incorrect information.

Users are required to observe any third-party privacy rights; in particular, users may not provide any third-party personal data.

When registering, you must select a unique password and enter a unique, valid, current and verifiable email address. Since dual use of certain data is not permitted, you will be prompted to select or enter a different name or address when entering an existing name or address. To confirm your registration, you will receive an email with a link. Your account will be created only once the registration process has been completed (double opt in).

You shall bear sole responsibility for maintaining the confidentiality of your password.

You may at any time request that your registration be deleted. In this case we will delete your registered information and personal data. Yamaha will in this case store only already registered serial numbers which have been entered as part of the extended warranties program, without retaining your personal data.

4. Registration of Yamaha products - warranty extension

Users may register any Yamaha products that are subject to Yamaha's extended warranty program on the YMME Platform.

When registering, you must specify model, serial number, date of purchase and name of the dealer. Since double registration of products is not permitted, when entering an already registered product, you will be prompted to provide a different serial number. Following product registration you will be able to download a warranty certificate.

If you delete your user account, your product registration will be deleted as well. Since for technical reasons it is not possible to re-register a product, you should first save the warranty certificate.

5. Liability

Notwithstanding any other statutory requirements, the following exclusions and limitations of liability pursuant to this section 5 shall apply for Yamaha's liability for damages.

Yamaha shall be liable without limitation if damage was caused by intent or gross negligence.

The above limitations shall not apply in case of injury to life, body, or health, any defect after assumption of quality guarantees for the quality of a product or fraudulently concealed defects. Liability under the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected.

To the extent that Yamaha's liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of employees, representatives, and agents of Yamaha.
